Oxford University Press (OUP) has announced that the first content from licensing agreements with several leading academic publishers is now available on Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO).

This month's update includes the 20-volume University of California Press edition of the Works of John Dryden ­(to date, the longest-running research project in the humanities ever undertaken at UCLA), volumes of the Edinburgh edition of the Works of Thomas Reid, and 16 British Academy titles. These will be added to OSEO together with recently published editions from OUP.

OUP has also agreed licenses with: the Bentham Project, University Press of Florida, University of Georgia Press, Pickering & Chatto, the University of Nebraska Press, Northwestern University Press, and The Pepys Library at Magdalene College, Cambridge.

Sophie Goldsworthy, editorial director for academic and trade at OUP, said: ‘Since launch, OSEO has had an immensely warm reception for the way in which it makes authoritative texts discoverable and accessible, and the research possibilities it opens up.

'We are delighted to be extending its reach in this manner, with prestigious editions from the wider publishing community, and to be furthering our aim to help scholars and students find reliable primary sources to build on in their research, teaching, and learning.’
